    UK - Rebecca Minnock, 35, & Ethan, 3, Taunton, Somerset, 26 May 2015

    Rebecca Minnock and her son Ethan

    Appeal: Rebecca and her son Ethan have been missing for more than 24 hours
    Rebecca Minnock: Fears for missing mum and 3-year-old son after she failed to turn up for appointment
    Rebecca – known as Becky – and her son Ethan were last seen near Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton, Somerset, yesterday. Rebecca Minnock, 35, and her son Ethan were last seen near Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton, Somerset, yesterday.

    The mum - known as Becky - was due to attend an appointment with her son in Bristol at 9 am today but failed to turn up.

    The appeal comes on the same week that University of Bath student Michael Brown went missing in the same force area.

    Detectives say they are concerned for the welfare of 24-year-old Michael Brown and that his disappearance is out of character.

    Missing Somerset mum Rebecca Minnock, 35, and son Ethan, gets in touch with her family

    "The family of a "wonderful" mother who has vanished with her three-year-old son say she has been in touch but have no idea where she is.

    Mum-of-one Rebecca Minnock, 35, and her child Ethan have not been since since Tuesday and police are desperately trying to find her.

    Becky, from Highbridge, Somerset, has got in touch with family to say she and Ethan are safe and well, but they have no idea where she is now."

    Latest news about this case, including the reason why custody was awarded to the father.


    Legal proceedings started between the parents in March 2013, when Mr Williams applied for contact with Ethan.
    On May 27 this year a district judge ruled Ethan should live with Mr Williams after finding that Ms Minnock had made false allegations and obstructed contact between father and son.
    Ms Minnock then left her home in Highbridge with Ethan and has not been seen since, despite a police investigation and campaign by Mr Williams to find his son.

    This is the kind of case where parents kill kids rather than turn over their kids. Also, how the heck are people able to disappear like this? How do they survive? Everything comes to a halt when you lose a job or support. Or can't use a credit card or ATM.

    This is weird.

    It seems likely that she is being supported by family:

    A man is facing jail after being convicted of contempt of court over the case of a woman missing with her son after a custody ruling against her.

    Rebecca Minnock, 35, and her son Ethan have been missing from Somerset for more than two weeks.

    Andrew Butt, the partner of Rebecca's mother Louise, was arrested on Wednesday and charged with contempt

    During a hearing at Bristol Crown Court Judge Stephen Wildblood said: "Mr Butt has told a string of lies."
    But the court heard the defendant had "continued to tell lies" after his arrest.

    "The only reason is that he knows precisely where they went and that he took them to Cheltenham in his motorcar that morning [27 May]," Judge Wildblood added.

    Butt is due back in court on Friday for sentencing.

    The court also heard a black Ford Focus was seen at Asda, where Rebecca took money out of a cash machine on the same day.

    At a previous hearing, Louise Minnock confirmed Butt owned a black Focus and stated that neither she nor her daughter were drivers.

    Since their disappearance, Miss Minnock and Ethan have been seen in Cheltenham and Birmingham where the police effort is now believed to be focused.

    A grandmother has been sentenced to 10 days in prison for lying in court about the disappearance of her daughter and three-year-old grandson.

    Police are searching for Rebecca Minnock, who fled with her son Ethan to avoid a ruling that the boy should live with his father.
    Her mother Louise, 52, was convicted of contempt of court for hiding the fact they were driven to Cheltenham.

    The driver, Andrew Butt, was jailed for the maximum 28 days for contempt.

    How terrible is it that I can relate to this! I have a 4 year old daughter and I am pretty sure if my husband left and was awarded full custody of her I would leave the country and I know without a doubt I would have all of my family supporting me. I know I am terrible for even thinking that but I would move heaven and hell to keep my daughter with me. /mama bear comes out sometimes!
